Home Decor with Glitz Design!!

Good Morning sweet friends!!  Most of you have never been to my home and I would be embarrassed to have you visit.  I'm a paper crafter and yet, my walls are pretty bare.  In all honesty, I've made quite a few wall art pieces over the past year, but they have all sold as fast as I've made them, which is a good thing for sure!!  However, bare walls are not a good thing.  Today's post features some items I've made with my favorite Glitz Design papers from the winter release, Happy Travels!!  The teal and red colors are perfect for home decor!

The first piece is a fun little Home Sweet Home Banner:
I layered some rustic cream pennants with a smaller teal pennant and added a sweet little doily and house die cut.  The loopy bows are made with Happy Travels papers, twine and rolled flowers.  So easy to make and very festive to hang!
You can see all the dimension in the bows from this angle!! I love them!  I made a matching little primitive piece of wall art:
based on the verse - "Love your neighbor as yourself".  I hand-cut the houses and added a cute little Happy Travels Glitzer.

For the final piece in the grouping, I took some old blocks that my son used to play with years ago and stacked them like houses and added die cut letters for the "God Bless Our Home" quote.  Way fun and so very cost effective!!!
I adhered the letters with Zip Dry so I can change the letters at any time without any damage to the blocks.  I'm really liking this simple way to dress up a shelf and the cost totally fit in my summer budget!

Here's the whole ensemble together:
Now I have some color on my walls!! Whooo hooooo!  I just love it when it all comes together!!
